geez, so much for political posts.

The coming crackdown on blogging:

Bradley Smith says that the freewheeling days of political blogging and online punditry are over.

In just a few months, he warns, bloggers and news organizations could risk the wrath of the federal government if they improperly link to a campaign's Web site. Even forwarding a political candidate's press release to a mailing list, depending on the details, could be punished by fines.


Great, I could be fined for speaking my opinion now, and backing it up with references? I certainly hope this gets killed.
